One of the very few leading professional saxophone quartets in Singapore, Xin Saxophone Quartet will be featuring two Asian Premieres of Singaporean works. As fervent advocates for new music, the quartet has once again looked to their resident composer, Jay Ong, for a third piece for saxophone quartet entitled Transit Sketches II which has been inspired by the sounds heard on Singapore’s public transport. The quartet will also be performing the popular Homage for saxophone quartet by Dr. Zechariah Goh (Head of Composition at the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts in Singapore) and The Serpent by Alexander Oon (Winner of the Peru Embassy Tumi Award in 2016).
